I have just creatd some style sheets by hand.  They look like this:

::::::::::::::
aeg_root/dyslexia.css
::::::::::::::
body {
    color : black;
    background : white;
    font : aerial, sans-serif;
    font-size : 200%;
}
::::::::::::::
aeg_root/low-vis.css
::::::::::::::
body {
    color : white;
    background : black;
    font : aerial, sans-serif;
    font-size : 200%;
}
::::::::::::::
aeg_root/standard.css
::::::::::::::
body {
    color : black;
    background : white;
    font : times-roman, serif;
}


Then I did this [head aeg_root/index.html]:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/strict.dtd">
<HTML>
<HEAD>
<TITLE>The Applied Electromagnetics Research Group</TITLE>
<LINK HREF="standard.css" REL="stylesheet" TITLE="Standard" TYPE="text/css">
<LINK HREF="low-vis.css" REL="alternate stylesheet" TITLE="Low Vision" TYPE="text/css">
<LINK HREF="dyslexia.css" REL="alternate stylesheet" TITLE="Dyslexia" TYPE="text/css">
</HEAD>
<BODY>

[....]

According to my understanding of:
http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/present/styles.html#h-14.3.2
this is all correct.

Invoking Amaya I get the style associated with "standard.css" which is
what I expect. What I do not see is how to invoke the alternate stylesheets.
I looked under all the menus which are available in browser mode, and under
style menu in edit mode, and in any menu I could get by clicking on
the document itself.

[Mind you, I could not see how to get this to work in Netscape 4.72, or IE5.5
either, so comments on those (off list) would help.]

I'm using Amaya 5.1 for Windows, under win98.
